An anime adaptation of Kyousuke Kamishiro's Mamahaha no Tsurego ga Motokano datta (My Stepsister is My Ex-Girlfriend) light novel was announced by publishing company Kadokawa on Wednesday.

Synopsis
A certain boy and girl in middle school became lovers, flirted with each other, disagreed on trivial things, became more frequently irritated with each other rather than excited... and ended up breaking up at graduation. And so the two of them, Mizuto Irido and Yume Ayai, wound up meeting each other in the most unexpected fashion.

"Isn't it obvious that I'm the elder brother?"
"Isn't it obvious that I'm the elder sister?"

The children of the partner of their parents' remarriage were ex-lovers?!

The former couple, mindful of their parent's feelings, decided on a "sibling rule" where the one who becomes conscious of the other as the opposite sex loses, but... When they encounter each other in the bathroom, commute to and from school together... along with the memories of the past and living under the same roof, just how do they disregard each other?! (Source: Kadokawa, translated)

Kamishiro began posting the romantic comedy novel, also known by its short title TsureKano, on the Kakuyomu website in August 2017. Kadokawa began printing the series through its Sneaker Bunko imprint the following December, featuring illustrations by TakayaKi (Arifureta Shokugyou de Sekai Saikyou). The sixth volume shipped on January 29, with the seventh volume scheduled for release on July 30 (pictured right). TsureKano has a cumulative 450,000 copies of its volumes in print.

Rei Kusakabe began drawing a manga adaptation under Niconico Seiga's Dra-Dra Sharp# web manga portal in May 2019. Kadokawa shipped the third volume on May 8. ComicWalker also posts the manga simultaneously.

TsureKano won the 3rd Kakuyomu Web Novel Contest under the Romantic Comedy category in 2018 and placed 7th and 5th in the 2020 and 2021 editions of Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi! rankings, respectively.

Loses what? I dont get that part...

Sounds better setup than most romcoms, it does has love triangle/harem? And what about the light-blue haired girl on the second pic? Is she a chilhood friend type-char? Class Rep with unspoken crush on Mc? Cousin?


uhm if the person breaks the rule he/she will be the little sibling, and will allow the other person to order them once

if you consider higashira a love rival then ok but she's just the best friend of male mc (your question should be answered in vol 2)

the light-blue haired girl? ahh thats the setokai vice president since our mc (yume) is joining the student council as the secretary

yes the girl is the mc. mizuto is the male lead. its a multiple pov novel

I though it had something to do with mother


You're right actually. I started looking into it and they're using a strange english title for this here which doesn't faithfully translate the Japanese title. I found another site translating it differently.
"Mamahaha no Tsurego ga Moto Kano Datta (My Stepmother's Daughter Was My Ex-Girlfriend)"
The meaning in the end is sorta similar.

That sounds like the perfect setup for an ancient greek style tragedy. That's exactly what we're getting, right? Right?
